9 Maxi Skirts to Style With All of Your Favorite Winter Boots
Just when we had started to embrace short skirts in all of their cropped, micro glory, colder temperatures began to take over and (as to be expected) have seriously limited our ability to continue wearing the leg-baring styles. Fortunately, for those of us fatigued by constant jean-wearing (hi!), there is another style that's already proving to be the winter's answer to one of the year's most coveted staples: the maxi skirt.
If you think about it, maxi skirts are really the perfect cold-weather alternative. They provide all of the same '90s charm as their cropped counterparts, just in a thicker (and frankly much warmer!) design. Long maxi skirts also provide so much styling versatility — giving you the freedom to pair them with everything from sneakers and loafers to knee-high boots and more.
After months of stocking up on miniskirts in just about every variation you could imagine — from country-chic denim minis (inspired by Kendall Jenner, of course) to teeny-tiny patent styles that just oozed Barbiecore vibes — we're more than ready to embrace some cozier and more conservative ensembles through the maxi skirt trend. If you're also hoping to ditch your pants altogether this winter, we've rounded up the best maxi skirts for women to shop this season — with styles that range in everything from boho maxi skirts (a year-round favorite!) and high-waisted maxi skirts to faux-leather styles, skirts with pockets, and even denim maxi skirts, too. Browse our picks ahead!
